The Federal Positioning, Navigation, and Timing Services Acquisitions Guidance

This guidance offers an overarching view of the model PNT contractual language construction process, key tenets of PNT resiliency and an associated workflow for the requisite drafting steps. The intended audience includes federal departments and agencies, along with state, local, tribal and territorial (SLTT) organizations, PNT program managers, acquisition professionals, and contract bidders. The primary aim is to guide users in assessing their PNT dependencies and establishing requirements for appropriate levels of resiliency based upon the operational needs of the proposed product, system, or service. This guidance is voluntary and does not: constitute regulations, define mandatory practices, provide a checklist for compliance or carry statutory authority. It is intended to be a set of guidelines.
